Home DIY How to Grow Bean Sprouts at Home

Bean sprouts are a nutritious addition to your diet and are relatively simple to grow. Here’s how.

Sprouting Beans and Seeds in Jars

Many kinds of beans and seeds are available for sprouting, providing a range of interesting flavors and textures. All sprouting seeds will grow in jars or tiered sprouters, which allow several crops to be grown at once.

1

Cover Seeds With Cold Water

Clean the container before each use. Pour seeds into a sprouting jar with a mesh lid for easy draining. Fill with cold water and leave the seeds to soak for 8 to 12 hours.

2

Invert Sprouting Jar and Rinse

Once the seeds have soaked, invert the jar over a sink, then rinse the seeds with cold water and drain again, making sure they are not standing in water. Place the jar out of direct sunlight, where air circulation is good.

3

Store Sprouts in Refrigerator

When they are ready, give the sprouts a final rinse, drain, and leave for 8 hours to allow excess water to evaporate. The sprouts can then be stored in the refrigerator for up to five days. Discard crop if mold develops.

4

Rinse and Drain Sprouts Twice a Day to Clean

Rinse and drain the seeds with cold water twice a day to keep them clean and moist. Alfalfa seeds sprout after only two days and are ready to eat two to four days after that. Try a few as the shoots lengthen to find the favorite eating stage.
